This episode is all about activism against the Abbott government as well as activism more generally. We have an interview with Andrew Kellyon the #tunnelpicket protest movement against a new road development that will destroy communities and privilege road travel over public transport. You can find out more about this campaign and how to get involved through the website ycat.org.au and The ‘No East-West Tunnel’ Pledge Facebook page. You can also find out more about sustainable transport on our 25th episode. We also have an interview with Helen Cox from Plan to Thrive on sustainable activism and avoiding activist burnout. Helen also discusses recovering from an Abbott victory, the importance of activists building support networks and community care.
